At The Arc Gateway’s Pollak Industries, adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities sort and prepackage beads that are donated after parades. By collecting and selling bundles of beads, The Arc Gateway supports our community’s effort to recycle and reuse materials instead of generating waste. We are also generating revenues that help sustain our programs while providing vocational training and job opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities.
The Arc Gateway's secure shredding services were funded through an Impact 100 grant to provide secure document shredding. Not only does this program provide jobs for people with developmental disabilities while providing a valuable service designed to safeguard identities and confidential information, it also has environmental benefits too. Instead of throwing away pounds and pounds of papers, the shredded materials are sold to business partners to be recycled.
Shredding services are available to businesses and individuals with no minimum pound requirement. Drop-off and Pick up service available. For more details and pricing, click here.
